3rd session cleaning neolithic excavation finds @ Heureka the Finnish Science Centre

What a wonderful community archaeology event. Some 20 + participants and we got a lot of work done! Three archaeology students from The University of Helsinki dpt of Archaeology participated too :). Thank You Heureka for supplying us with the facilities and the opportunity to view the 2015 excavations in 3D.

One of the participants came up with the great idea that cleaning excavation finds is actually very meditative and could be used when practising mindfullness and generally promoting well-being :)

Because of the huge popularity of the event we are planning one more opportunity for the general public to get involved with this part of the archaeological research process.
